Lost Verse For My Favorite Hymn

I found this at Gene Edward Veith's Cranach site. I'll try to get our music director to insert it next year.

Lost verse of a classic carol

You may know the beautiful Christmas hymn "Of the Father's Love Begotten" (though it too is unjustly neglected). But the English translation, as often happen, leaves out a verse. The new "Evangelical Lutheran Hymnary"--an excellent worship book from the Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS)--puts it back in. (HT: hymnwriter Mark Preus)

He was found in human fashion Death and sorrow here to know That the race of Adam's children, Doomed by law to endless woe, May not henceforth die and perish In the depths of hell below. (Evermore and evermore)

We sang that song at our ELS church this Christmas! It is a beautiful song. I just discovered your blog and have introduced it on my blog. Welcome! Good blog!
